Tablet frame, mic, keyboard, and guitar stands are versatile and durable

Buena Park, CA - February 2012. Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of
analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and
distributor of Goby Labs instrument care and accessory products, is pleased
to announce the introduction of a new product line by Goby Labs: stands for
musicians. Incorporating 'ruggedized' metal construction designed for years
of use, Goby Labs' new product line includes two microphone stands, a
keyboard stand, two guitar stands, and a Tablet Frame for iPadR-all designed
to aid musicians with everyday performing and rehearsal tasks.

World-class design and superior build quality are hallmarks of the new Goby
Labs stands. Designed in the U.S. after extensive interviews with musicians
from a wide range of performance and studio environments, these stands
feature robust metal construction and components designed and manufactured
exclusively for Goby Labs stands.

Microphone and Short Microphone Stands with Boom
Featuring die-cast components, including thick-walled, zinc alloy handles
and metal-on-metal threaded components, the GBM-300 Mic Stand with Boom and
the GBD-300 Short Mic Stand with Boom re-define durability. The center-mass
boom design features a mid-point, all-metal, locking grip for enhanced boom
balance and an easy-to-turn pivot lock with integrated cord retention. The
metal base incorporates a 'stomp tube' that enables it to be stood upon
without bending the legs or breaking the stand. These stands also feature an
ultra-heavy, center-locking, vertical handle for added stability and the
appearance of clean lines on stage.

X-Frame Keyboard Stand
The Goby Labs GBK-300 X-Frame Keyboard Stand features high-strength
geometry, including Z-shaped down tubes that form a truss shape to withstand
greater vertical pressure. For added stability, the truss form ends directly
under the keyboard edge-where the performer applies most of his or her
weight. The GBK-300's tube construction is 40\% stronger than conventional
boxed-steel designs.  Stamped bearing surfaces are spot welded to the frame
and the stand is assembled with bolts and nuts rather than rivets or clamps
for durability and field serviceability. The stand utilizes an easy-pull,
fully locking adjustment system, has self-leveling feet for uneven floors,
and cord retention for most commonly used cables.

A-Frame and Universal Guitar Stands
The Goby Labs GBA-300 A-Frame and GBU-300 Universal Guitar Stands offer the
modern guitarist two durable, rock-solid means of securely holding one's
valuable instruments. The GBA-300 A-Frame stand utilizes a fully locking
open- and closed-position leg engagement. With a stance that is 60 mm longer
than that of most competing products-thus reducing the chance of
tipping-this stand features a large diameter, 8 mm, mandrel bent steel rod
frame. The Goby Labs GBU-300 Universal Guitar Stand incorporates a
lock-open/spring-closed mechanism for performance and storage respectively,
over-molded rubber touch surfaces that prevent abrasion and protect the
instrument's finish (compared to neoprene foam found on competing models),
and full-cradle guitar retention. The head catch slides vertically to
accommodate guitar necks of various lengths and full guitar-body support
alleviates pull on the guitar neck. Both models fit dreadnaught acoustic
through most electric guitars and feature over-molded, metal-core, rubber
feet for exceptional stability.

The GBX-300 Tablet Frame for iPad
Featuring universal iPad compatibility (both 1st and 2nd generation), the
GBX-300 Tablet Frame for iPad featuring 'frame-change' technology holds any
iPad on all four sides for extra security. With its patent-pending pole lock
that facilitates support on mic stands, music stands, and other tubular
surfaces, the system features a counter-locking arm that engages as the
clamp is tightened on a pole-forming a closed loop around the pole for added
strength. This innovative design applies more force to the pole as opposed
to open-sided designs. The GBX-300 Tablet Frame is a great tool for
electronic sheet music, lyric support, and performance notes. Low-cost
frame-change kits will be made available for new tablets so the Tablet Frame
hardware will never become obsolete.

Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology's Director of Sales and Marketing, commented
on the new Goby Labs stands, "The moment you see these stands, it becomes
clear that not only are these the most rugged, durable stands widely
available, their cutting-edge design inspires confidence that one's
instrument, microphone, or iPad will be held securely. With full-metal
construction and components that are manufactured specifically for these
products, Goby Labs stands represent the state-of-the-art when it comes to
products of this nature. I'm confident many musicians, vocalists, and others
will be very impressed."
